Pumpkins for Pigs program ongoing in Luzerne County

SHAVERTOWN, LUZERNE COUNTY (WOLF) -- Don’t throw away your pumpkins from Halloween -- they could make a good snack for local farm animals.

The Lands at Hillside Farms is asking for pumpkin donations for their annual Pumpkins for Pigs program.

They go straight to pigs and chickens to help keep them fed through the winter.

The program also promotes sustainability - encouraging folks to re-purpose their gourds instead of throwing them into landfills.

Pumpkins can be dropped off in the farm’s upper parking lot any time between now and November 15.
